gnome-terminal doesn't start


gnome-terminal doesn't start for a week. When I run it from other terminal (e.g. urxvt) there isn't any output information. Process continues to exist until I press Ctrl+C. I'm not sure, but looks like it happened after update.

Distro: ArchLinux
Desktop: xmonad
gnome-terminal --version output: "Терминал GNOME 3.22.1 Используется VTE версии 0.46.1 +GNUTLS"
locale (it's fine):
Code:
LANG=ru_RU.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="ru_RU.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="ru_RU.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="ru_RU.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="ru_RU.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="ru_RU.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES=ru_RU.UTF-8
LC_PAPER="ru_RU.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="ru_RU.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="ru_RU.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="ru_RU.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="ru_RU.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="ru_RU.UTF-8"

Environment looks alright. Are you able to lauch other GTK3-based apps like gedit no prob? Or you can create a dummy account and test from there, just in case some of your .g* configs are messed up. Or if you feel like digging deeper, you can strace it.

Absolutely. Gedit is my favourite code editor.

I've already tried too.

Can you explain?

You open xterm, then launch strace with gnome-terminal as the argument. For example,

Code:
strace -o mystrace.txt gnome-terminal
be warned with gazillion system calls. You can, though specify which syscalls you want (eg -e open,write ...). If you can try that and post the output here, people here might be able to help you out.

The recent system update fixed it. Thanks for your time.
